Awards Watch: Tony Award Nominations

Billy Elliot triumphed once again, landing 15 Tony Award nominations today, including Best Musical, Best Director for Stephen Daldry, Best Score for Elton John and Lee Hall and a rare joint Best Actor nomination for the trio of boys who play the title role. Another screen-to-stage fave, Shrek, is also up for the top tuner trophy (plus seven other nominations), while 9 to 5 and White Christmas had to settle for just four and two nods each, respectively.

Other acting nods went to Billy's David Bologna, Haydn Gwynne, Gregory Jbara and Carole Shelley, Shrek's Brian d’Arcy James, Sutton Foster and Christopher Sieber and 9 to 5's Allison Janney and Marc Kudisch.

The 63rd Annual Tony Awards will be presented live from Radio City Music Hall June 7 on CBS.

UPDATE: Neil Patrick Harris has been announced as this year's host for the Tony Awards.
